In the right picture you see a mixed menu with “ayam goreng” (fried chicken) with “tempeh” (a traditional fried soybean product), also „tahu“, a fried Tofu and „lontong“, rice steamed in banana leaves. Like you can see there are a spoon and a fork, that´s how an Indonesian meal commonly is eaten.
You are wondering, why there is something pink on the plate? Yes, it is pink “krupuk” a special kind of shrimp crackers. The egg is topped with „sambal“, a hot chili-based saucewith garlic and onions. Last but not least there is „mie goreng“, Indonesian for fried noodles with „ayam goreng” (fried chicken) and as a drink a lemon ice tea.
And that´s how happy you can be to eat the real indonesian food after a long time in germany. :-) Ilham is eating "nasi timbel" served on bamboo leaves. I´m drinking a "jus jeruk", a fresh orange juice. Almost every day I tried an other fresh juice. Fruit juices are very popular, there are so many, like guava (jus jambu), mango (jus mangga), soursop (jus sirsak), pineapple (jus nanas) and so much more.
It is so delicious! Try to cook it!
